Welcome to Hillside Village where the tree lined streets are wide, and the sidewalks welcome strolling neighbors, walking their dogs or jogging up to Ascot Hills Park for the miles of hiking trails and 360 degree views from Mt. Baldy to Long Beach! Once you enter the front gate of 1826 Ditman, you'll be captivated by the mature California native landscaping with little treasures of pottery, shells, and budding cacti. This lovingly curated home was featured in HGTV's House Hunter's Renovation. In this episode the kitchen was completely remodeled with a Thermador cooktop, oven, microwave and dishwasher. There's also a wine fridge, Bosch stacked washer and dryer, gorgeous custom cabinets with plenty of stunning counterspace to entertain. The dining room features William Morris ethereal wallpaper, vintage telephone niche, and 1940's archway. Another gorgeous archway gives way to the updated bathroom, and 2nd bedroom with corner windows and built-in period armoire. Next you'll enter your master suite; the master bathroom features a Restoration Hardware double vanity and fixtures, hand made Italian tiles, and authentic barn door. The suite also features a sitting area with French doors leading to a beautiful lawn, covered Pergola for alfresco dining, and an outdoor living room for entertaining. The long driveway leads you to a finished detached garage which is perfect for an ADU and currently has a sound booth for recording your podcasts. The renovation also included a tankless water heater, new HVAC system, new windows in the kitchen, master, and living room, and new roof over the master bedroom. You'll enjoy all the things to do in the neighborhood like walking to Village Mart & Deli, Tony's Subs (one of the best subs in town!), King Torta for their popular Mexican food or Cha Cha Chili for Korean-Mexican fusion and the very special Dough Box Pizza. El Sereno is close to DTLA, Chinatown, South Pasadena, and Alhambra for a myriad of cultural, dining, and nightlife experiences. Lincoln Heights is also nearby where you can check out the Heights Deli, Bottle Shop or City Terrace for Sara's Market for wonderfully curated beer and wine. USC also offers reduced gym memberships to local residents at their state of the art gym which is less than a mile away! In a nutshell, this home not only gives you a welcoming move-in ready vibe but the location ensures that you'll love the life you're able to live in your community.
